The novel Coronavirus, COVID-19, is affecting all continents and countries of the globe. The health of athletes, staff, stakeholders, and fans is of the utmost importance as the ISA continues to monitor the updates and regulations in place around the world.
We look towards health experts around the world to act accordingly as the situation evolves. We encourage all stakeholders to consult and follow national, regional and local regulations and/or guidelines for surfing and any other outdoor activities.
